their crowning achievement pushing through a debt ceiling suspension until may by a vote of 285-144 yesterday. i guess a hard day's work deserves a week and a half of recess. >> amen. >> meantime, the senate is in session today and harry reid and mitch mcconnell apparently agreed on a filibuster reform deal. a senator can no longer filibuster the so-called motion to proceed and killed a chance for up or down vote on legislation and be easier to appoint members to negotiate with the house once a bill is passed and until now even after a fill buster is beaten, there is still a 30-hour wait before a nominee confirmed. this time would now be cut to just two hours. the leaders also agreed any senator wishing to filibuster must come to the senate floor to do so. now, the steps might seem to represent progress but not nearly what many progressives wishing for. the headline in "the huffington post" says it all calling it failibuster. >> whoa. >> 60-vote senate is still intact. today is ira shap ro and also author of "the last great senate." and he joins us now. ira, i want to get to the filibuster deal
